More sale shopping! I spotted these beauties when on a recent shopping trip to Guildford with Lizzie.  Until now I've never bought anything from Elizabeth Arden, nor do I think I've ever managed to bag higher end make up in the sales. 

For starters I picked up this lipgloss in Sparkling Ruby 02.  We'd been looking in MAC and nothing had really wowed me enough to purchase.  Our first reaction when we spotted this was that it was very like MAC's Cranberry in a gloss.  I wouldn't say it's ruby like the name suggests, more of a burnt pinky red.  This does however translate more red on the lips.  I've yet to wear it out (too busy playing with all my other make up), but when I did try it on the lips it felt nice and thin and not too sticky.

Lizzie picked up a lovely pink blush, but as usual I was drawn to this more peachy shade - Peach Sorbet 07.  It's not dissimilar to other blushes I own; reminds me of Topshop's Head over Heels in a powder form and is reminiscent of their Whimsical lipstick, but a girl can never have too many peach blushes.  This is perfect for an almost contoured look, rather than an obvious pop of colour on the apples of the cheeks.

Now here comes the best bit.  The lipgloss and blusher were originally priced at £15 and £24 respectively, but I managed to get both of these for just £19.

Have you found any high end bargains recently?  What do you think of these two?
